Gustavus Homecoming — 47 years later

October 8th at 11:30 at the Folke Bernadette Library at Gustavus Adolphus College—my Alma Mater—I will be giving a STORYTIME chat for kids (and adults) based on A Splintered History of Wood and the miraculous role of wood in our lives (as part of HOMECOMING 2022.) I have't been "home" for 47 years, so looking forward to the event. Come on all you ex-Gusties!
